In 2016, my uncle died from stage 4 colon cancer, and since that day my career focus has been on health. I am currently attending Texas A&M University in College Station with the goal of becoming a nurse. I wish to become a nurse to work in the oncology wing of UT Southwestern Medical Hospital in Dallas to make the greatest impact on the lives affected by cancer. Winning this scholarship means more to me and to my family than you could possibly know.
My Dad currently works over 70 hours a week to support not only me but also my sister who is currently at TWU in Denton. I am very grateful for everything my Dad does for me, the long nights, the early mornings, all for me to gain a college education. Winning this scholarship will not only help myself and lower the cost of tuition, but it will also help my family to relax, and help my Dad by cutting down his hours by a small margin. This scholarship will allow me to continue my education and pursue my goal of working in oncology. I truly wish I could’ve been there in person to receive my scholarship and meet all the wonderful people.Back to Scholarship Recipients
